Yarn Along 2015.30: More Blue Knitting

Joining Ginny's Yarn Along briefly today.  It's Fair Week here, so time is at a premium (no pun intended, lol).

Still working on sock #1 of the Petty Harbour socks for Dad.  I'm about halfway done with the foot, so maybe, maybe, maybe I can finish it in the next week.  Then again, this is Fair Week, so the likelihood of enough knitting time is slim.

As you can see in the above picture, I also am working on another wash cloth for DD2 to take up to college with her.  The color is actually one of the same shades of blue as in the entrelac washcloth I was working on last week, so they will coordinate nicely.

The pattern is called Celtic Cables, so not only is it visually interesting, but meaningful to DD2 since she likes Celtic things.  I knit on it while in the car last weekend driving the couple of hours to and from where I camped and kayaked.  What you see in the picture is approximately 1/3 of the pattern.

Before I started on the cabled cloth, I finished the entrelac one.  Believe it or not, I found entrelac to be something I could do with less attention than the cabled cloth is requiring.  Below is the completed entrelac cloth.

That's all for now.  Hoping to compile a post about DD2's experiences at the Fair later this week.  If not, see you again next Wednesday for the next yarn along.


  1. Those are beautiful washcloths! I'm tempted to try the entrelac one as a way of learning that stitch.

    1. I've found entrelac to be so easy it's silly. If you know how to pick up stitches, make increases and decreases, you will have no trouble with entrelac.

  2. Lovely cloths and great looking sock!
